Quick Moves

Animal abuser to keep dogs

Issaquah to decide on Klahanie annexation in 2013 BY CELESTE GRACEY CGRACEY@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM

Three of the 100 abused dogs will return to Issaquah woman

Plans to annex Klahanie to a city are moving quicker than expected, but Issaquah’s leadership has far from decided whether to add the neighborhood to its boundaries or pass it off to Sammamish. For Issaquah City Council, it comes down to the money. If it costs more to operate Klahanie than it pays out, annexing would be a bad move for the rest of the city, said Tola Marts, council president. “My heart is with the Klahanie folks, but I have to use my head.” To figure out how much the neighborhood would cost to run, the council decided to add an $100,000 study to its budget next year. Interest is so high on the council, some even hope to get enough money to start the study this fall. Part of the push is politics. At the end of 2013, Issaquah could lose four of its seven councilmembers and Mayor Ava Frisinger’s seat will be up

purebreds, hasn’t decided what action, if any, to take with Hamilton. While it could include suspension from all AKC activities and fines, the group is waiting to see the court documents before making a decision. Fourteen of Hamilton’s dogs were so sick that veterinarians had to euthanize them. Some had dental problems so severe their jaws rotted. Most of them had muscle atrophy, were under fed and were covered in feces from being locked in cages, according court documents. Since the dogs were rescued, they have had months to grow stronger in foster homes. Now that the trial is over, Regional Animal Services of King

County is trying to find them homes. Szper was hoping DD would get placed with a nice family, one that would continue her training. When DD first arrived, she didn’t even know how to walk up stairs. Today, she runs up and down them for exercise. She sits, stays and even bows. When animal control came to Hamilton’s house to take away the dogs, she insisted that she hadn’t done anything wrong, according to the court papers. Szper is concerned that her mentality hasn’t changed, and worries for the dog. “I can imagine what her future is going to be, and it breaks my heart.” Issaquah Reporter staff writer Celeste Gracey can be reached at 425-391-0363, ext. 5052.


for election. “We feel it’s a responsibility that this council resolve this issue before the end of next year,” Marts said. If the study comes back positive for annexation, a vote could be introduced and approved in 2013. That’s the hope of Rob Young, who has been leading the charge among Klahanie residents for the past year. He turned in a petition with 10 percent of the community’s signatures just before the council made a decision at its annual goal setting retreat June 2. While Young cares more about Klahanie joining a city than which one, he hopes Issaquah works out, because it’s the quickest route. Cuts in the county have threatened the neighborhood’s

annexation process. Sammamish has been favorable to annexations, because most of its revenue is based on property taxes, whereas Issaquah has more businesses to lean on. Sammamish leadership doesn’t want to get involved until after Issaquah makes up its mind. Eastside Fire and Rescue, however, has such high stakes in Klahanie going to Issaquah that two fire districts have offered money for Issaquah’s study. Sammamish is discussing pulling out of EF&R, and Klahanie represents a large chunk of revenue for District 10. It all comes down to the study. Councilmembers need more data, Marts said. “I don’t think there are four councilmembers who are ready to annex Klahanie, and I don’t think there are four councilmembers who are ready to give it to Sammamish.”

Time for community to claim Lake Sammamish State Park

t’s been over a year since I first walked through Lake Sammamish State Park, my shoes thick with mud, trying to understand why people had stopped attending a place Issaquah had declared one of its biggest gems. I found myself meeting with two councilmembers who were passionate about Lake Sammamish, Stacy Goodman and Eileen Barber. A couple months after our series on the park, Goodman and Barber stayed true to their commitments. They got the park as part of the council goals for this year. Monday they took the next big step. Not only did they get unanimous support for, again, trying to help the state Celeste Gracey park, a rare thing at a council goal setting retreat, but they also pushed forward a memorandum of understanding. The memorandum is a legal document that sets the ground rules for Issaquah and the state parks department to look at ways to help fund and generate community interest at Lake Sammamish. Part of the discussion is to look at whether the city could take over the park, but that’s not necessarily the goal. I want to applaud the two for their hard work bringing this forward and for the work they’ll undoubtedly put in over the next couple of years. Our state parks certainly can use a partner. State lawmakers showed interest this year in helping the park, including putting $3.1 million for repairs in their budget, but Gov. Chris Gregoire axed the money at the last minute. However, before we make the lawmakers out to be heroes, consider that Lake Sammamish needed help years ago. The state has been sitting on plans for six years to rehabilitate the beach, which was once a regional summer hub. The park has the potential to redefine Issaquah. It has two of the biggest swimming beaches on the Eastside. It’s time for this community to claim the park for its own. We can do that by creating a presence. Try picnicking there this summer. Tibbett Beach has some beautiful spots. The city wants to host a fireworks display next year; encourage officials to put it at the park. It certainly has the parking. Buy a $30 Discover Pass. The more passes sold at Lake Sammamish, the better the odds the state will invest money there. Finally, start a project at the park or join someone who has. It will send a message that the park is something more than a few muddy soccer fields. It’s an opportunity for community to thrive.

Appetite for schooling options growing


s we move into the 21st century, the growth of individualized services is one very clear trend. Most aspects of our lives are improved with customization to meet our needs—our phones, our banking, our insurance, our software, and even our employment arrangements are much more adaptable. Education services, however, have been surprisingly resistant to change. Among the education policies debated this legislative session was whether Washington should become the 43rd state to adopt a charter school law. Charter schools are tuition-free public schools freed from many state and local Jami Lund regulations in exchange for stronger accountability, as outlined in their “charter.” Should a charter school fail to meet that contract, it is shut down. Such an agreement gives teachers and principals the power to be more flexible and innovative in how they educate students and serve the unique needs of their community. Charter schools are public schools for the 21st century. Public opinion research released by the Friedman Foundation and the Freedom Foundation found that 60 percent of Washington voters favor charter schools and only 23 percent oppose. In addition, other methods of expanding the options for families and students are also popular. “Tax credit scholarships” are supported by 59 percent. “Education savings accounts” are favored by 57 percent, and even school vouchers have 55 percent support. As more states adopt school choice policies—charter

schools, online learning, private school scholarships, and so on—it is clear that greater choice and more high-quality educational options are the best ways to ensure each child’s unique needs are met. Washington residents have yet to experience this benefit, but if it were available, they would take advantage of it. Today, 93 percent of Washington students attend traditional public schools. However, according to the survey of state voters, if given the opportunity to select any type of school for their children, only 40 percent would choose regular public schools. Among the other options, one percent would choose virtual schools, seven percent would prefer to home school, 14 percent would opt for charter schools, and 35 percent would pick private school settings. Washington’s current policies do not sync up with parents’ schooling preferences. The research, as well as numerous levy votes statewide, demonstrates that citizens appreciate the important work of public schools. The desire to see schools deregulated is simply an appetite for customized and individualized service which exists in so many other aspects of life. Citizens believe in their local schools and recognize the challenges faced by education professionals, but more than half in the survey believed that the education system is “on the wrong track.” Olympia lawmakers should lift regulations and expand options for students, families and communities. Local elected School Directors, who have surprisingly great authority, should also innovate in ways that expand options for the families they serve.

“Charter schools are public schools for the 21st century.”

Jami Lund is the education reform fellow for the Freedom Foundation, a free market think tank in Olympia.

Katie Burnett never thought she would become a world class athlete. She joined the track team in middle school not to compete, but to build connections to classmates she rarely knew for longer than a few months. But somewhere along the way, Burnett found that each helped maintain the other. During her youth, environment was far from a constant for Burnett. She spent her elementary years at six different schools in Washington, Oregon and Arizona and moved three times during her freshman year of high school alone. After spending time at Newport, Skyline and Kentlake, Burnett and her family moved back to Arizona for her final two years of high school. “It was a lot easier in elementary school,” she said. “In high school you have made more of those deep connections and that makes it a lot harder.” With her life in a seemingly constant state of change, track and field became one of the few reliable outlets for Burnett. It also offered a chance to connect with peers and her father in a way little else could. She initially raced in more traditional

Sammamish sets deadline for Eastside Fire & Rescue

Facing a room packed full of anxious firefighters, the Sammamish City Council unanimously voted Monday to extend talks with Eastside Fire & Rescue and not immediately follow a recommendation to leave the partnership after the current agreement runs out in 2014. In an effort to find common ground in governance and funding models, the council authorized City Manager Ben Yazici to pursue fire service negotiations with EFR over the next three months. “I think during that time period we need to sit down and have a serious give and take and discuss equity issues with our partners and hopefully we can come to some resolution,” said city councilman Don Gerend.

She also said there has been a lot of tension in recent years, stemmed largely from Sammamish not wanting to subsidize the rest of the district, which includes North Bend, Issaquah, District 10 and District 38. “Name calling and other negative comments really are not productive,” she said. “We need to be constructive and work

together.” Craig Hooper, head of the Eastside Professional Firefighters union, said after the meeting, he was pleased the council decided to amend its original resolution and extend talks. He also remained optimistic about the future relationship.

“I hope the partners can work out an agreement moving forward that keeps the current level of service and the current providers together for the long term,” he said. “I think that’s in the best interest of all the citizens and I think that’s in the best interest of all the partners.”

We are a small, country church preaching and teaching God’s word. We gather to worship our Lord Jesus Christ and learn from his word. It is our hope you will find the worship uplifting and inspiring, the messages relevant and practical, and the people warm and genuine.

We would be delighted to have you browse our website at and visit us Sunday mornings at 10:00 am.
